realize that it was paul ryan and the ideological republican tea party caucus that tried to cut that budget by $300 million so that the president and joe biden and secretary clinton didn't have enough money as they requested to try to provide security. so you get caught up in these things. yeah, they have -- they get amnesia, or romnesia, however you want to speak about it, when you talk about foreign policy and they forget that it was president bush. that got us into the worst foreign policy debacle in the history of this country. we will be digging ourselves out of the hole in iraq for a long, long time. because of failed intelligence and a variety of other thins. these guys remained -- remind me of a sports announcer. you watch the beginning of the football team and the analyst says, this team is going to win for sure, this is going to be a blowout. then the game is over and they were wrong they don't mention that they were wrong and made bad predicts. that's what these guys remind me of. you guys cause halved of these problems, 3/4 of these problems and you turn around and t

. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we
believe that mitt romney and paul ryan as vice president would bring about a reversal of some of the last government policies that will cripple this country. we haven't seen what's going to happen as a result of the obama healthcare policy, and dodd-frank, the dodd-frank bill, businesses like to look into the long term. they're not looking short term at all. they have to project out their business plans for the long term. host: what kind of a business are you in? caller: i'm not, but i'm a free market -- i'm a free market supporter. and under president obama and joe biden, they're more for big business. host: are you working down there? caller: no. no, i'm not retired. host: what kind of work do you do, joan? caller: well, i've done clerical work. i've done hospital work as a therapist. i worked as a nurse's aide for quite a few years. i've worked in all kinds of businesses. host: and what's the healthcare business like there in palm coast? caller: well, they are enlarging some of the services that will be available. healthcare is a booming industry. it has been, especially because of med
: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the num

the republican party and particularly governor romney saying we will cut -- and his vice president, paul ryan, less government, more cuts. what does it mean? it means the very cuts we are looking at now in defense. 200,000 jobs in virginia. let's examine the entire picture and not just listen to those ads that somehow are letting the defense cutbacks at governor tim kaine who was not an office or the present. this is because the republican obstructionist congress saw political opportunity and said we are not going to raise heavy debt ceiling. how irresponsible? host: let's go to the next call. kentucky on the independent line. debbie per. please, go ahead. caller: i am calling because of all of this -- what he did, the damage in new jersey. that is just for him to get help. he has not done nothing for us for the last four years. that president did nothing but put us all and the poor house. my husband is a welder and he lost his job and got another job, lower pay, and we are about to lose our home and everything because of obama. to voteon't know who for, but it sure will not beat obama. host:
of this campaign talking about small things, but the challenge we face are real and big. that is why paul ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuild a strong military and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear. we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in in a new direction in just a few short days. on tuesday, the choice is yours. our destiny is in your hands. i hope to have your support and your vote. thank you and god bless america. >> presidential candidate mitt romney given the republican weekly address. and before that, of obama giving his weekly address. all day, c-span is bringing you the dates from some of the most hotly contested senate and congress races around the country. here are the numbers to call to share your thoughts. you can also send us a tweet. let's get to the phones and hear what you have to say. anthony is in cedar rapids. were you watching the debate of iowa oppose a fourth? fourth?s caller: i have been writing to the president for some time on how to actually creat

was supposed to be in virginia. and a tuesday event in virginia headlined by paul ryan have been cancelled. campaign stoppeders in virmingvirge are collecting supplies. ed to in wiss today in wisconsin democrats line. caller: you can listen to the headlines from fox news already that the president is going to fail miserable bli. that's the only plan they have is to bash the president at every single turn. they have no other answer other than bashing the president to make themselves look good. and as far as romney's campaign plan for the storm. they are no president. they have no power. all they can do is sit back and talk. so you can watch the headlines and all the conservative talk shows and the president fails. i tell you right now what the story is going to be. and that's basically all i have to say. host: let's look at how the obama campaign is retuning its depame plan in the wake of the storm. president is not attending an event in florida because of the hurricane. he is leaving florida to head back to washington. this is a report from the white house pool that covers the president. t
a 43% reduction in fema grants. paul ryan others have tried to refuse budget requests when disasters are more expensive or other programs be cut to pay for them. the ryan budget which mr. romney praised as an excellent piece of work with result in severe cutbacks to the agency as would republican i understand city gated sequester that could relief 8.2%. mr. romney believe that financially stressed states would do a better job than properly functioning federal agency? that is "new york times" editorial. a call from louisville, ohio. rex. independent caller. caller: i'm looking at the question and somebody will have to come to the realization that we are dealing with education regurgitation. because you said trust in government through natural disaster. could we trust so-called government in getting in to illegal unfunded wars or trust the government dealing with hiding fascist trade agreements or $4 for a gallon of gas? so, no, we can't trust the government. but the problem is the question. because the government is the people. if you go to the constitution, it is a government for the
to elect mitt romney and paul ryan to save jobs in virginia? \[applause] are you ready to get the greatest country on earth out of debt and back to work by electing mitt romney? \[applause] i thought so. well you look all dried out and recovered from the store and god blessed us by giving us a glancing blow. what great work done by our first responders and government officials around the state. we are blessed to have done so well here in virginia. \[applause] you know a month ago president obama came to virginia and said if you don't win virginia, i won't be president of the united states. will you help him keep that promise? \[applause] we love having mitt romney here. but we like having president obama and joe biden here because they say the darnedest things in virginia, don't they? >> like bind saying it's great to be here in north carolina. and president obama saying he had a business but somebody else built that. does that sound like somebody who understands free enterprise and the american dream? fortunately, we have a candidate who does. i'm glad to have followed george allen. he wa
on the millionaires and billionaires. to say you would not cut pell grants, as paul ryan wants to, yet it is important to understand where these two campaigns come from. this is an insider against an outsider. mr. davis had a fund-raiser over in missouri recently with a friend of paul ryan's. these people are helping him. the u.s. chamber of commerce, they are helping him. they are not doing it out of the goodness of their hard. they expect something in return should he get to washington d.c. to stand up for a budget that proposes. appeare we need education more accessible and more affordable. pell grants should be far more readily available to young people such as yourself. being that 75% of my funding comes from people just like you, ordinary citizens, an average donation of $61, the proof is in the pudding. that is why i am going to washington to work on your behalf to make sure you can get to college to graduate and to work to create jobs with in this economy. that we do not have to graduate with a mountain of debt. >> the hypocrisy. this is the same day my opponent took money from nancy manyi's g
eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the numbers
in entitlements. interestingly, governor romney and paul reihan -- paul ryan fell into the trap of telling this to seniors. people vote for leadership. at what the president should have done is what i believe he will do if he is reelected, and what are held governor romney will do, and that is, lead. it would have a framework here -- we have a framework here that can fix the debt. nothing is more important than eliminating the deficit and fixing the debt. so many things will flow from that. the president has to get both sides together, the caucus leaders, the people who took some chances on since and-bolts, tom coburn who said, i guess, i'm taking a chance. we've got to get the big urbansa -- the dick durbins, who supported simpson-balls even though it -- simpson-bowles. and we need to get something along those lines to eliminate the deficit and fix the debt, invest in building a true american energy independence, that will increase the tax credit for wind and solar, do things for gossip and solar and oil, and -- to do things for gas and oil. even if we do not build new nuclear reactors, o
-- it sounds good until you realize that it was paul ryan and the ideological republican tea party caucus that tried to cut that budget by $300 million so that the president and joe biden did not have enough money to provide security. you get caught up in these things. they get amnesia or romnesia when the talk about the foreign policy. the four get to that it was president bush that got us into the worst foreign-policy debacle. we will be digging ourselves of the hole in iraq for a long time because of failed intelligence and a variety of other things. they remind me of the sports announcer. you watched the beginning of a football game. this analyst says this team is going to win for sure. this will be a blowout. and the game is over and they are wrong, and they do not even mention that there were wrong or made all these bad predictions. that is who they remind me of. you guys cost three-quarters of these problems and then you turn around and try to climb obama. but the american people are smart. they pay attention when the time is right. that is why you see obama doing well in places li
budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country. [applause] secondly, third, we -- >> running low on time. >> we need the super p.a.c.sit n and political action committees, that would be one of the things to open up our country for greater process and greater voice by the people, and finally, we need term limits. it is time to do the best job in congress instead of the election and fund raiser. >> now an opening statement from governor johnson. >> the country is in really deep trouble. we should not bomb iran. [applause] we should end the war in afghanistan tomorrow. bring the troops home tomorrow. [che
job to be sure that they get out there and vote and a boat for mitt romney and paul ryan. [applause] if everybody finds five people in the washington court house or wherever it -- you live to make sure they support mitt romney, we can make a difference. you might want to consider that. it frees you up on election day to get those five people to the polls we will try to bring a lot of folks with us to be sure that we're banking those folks. we're free to do everything we can to ensure we have the victory on november 6. when barack obama ran for president he said we will cut the deficit in half. the deficit is now $1 trillion this year. he has added 50% to our debt to the point that it has gone to $16 trillion. it does not -- does that is working to you? and when he pushed to the health care bill through, he said, if you pass this legislation, we will reduce health-care costs. the reduction will be about $2,500. it actually has increased costs by about $2,500. does this sound like it is working? we are in the right place. and then the stimulus package, when he said i want a trillion d
